School of Hard Knocks 2013 - Episode 1

Being one of the many "Yanks" who live, love, breathe and eat rugby, it was through Twitter that I heard about this show. Thank you, RD, for sharing this! Love this show!

USA Eagle Samu Manoa's huge hit on Peter O'Mahony

Does anyone else notice how far back POM flies right as he and Samu are heading to the ground? There's about a good yard of space between them! Props to POM for holding onto the ball and maintaining possession but you know he'll be feeling that "hug" from Samu for at least a week!

As an American w/ Irish ties (who LOVES the Eagles and the IRFU), I can't help but smile after realizing that this past weekend, we set a Rugby attendance record for a match on American soil with over 20,000+ people! The only thing that could've made it better (aside from the Eagles upsetting Ireland [even though most of their starters are on Lions duty]) is if ESPN could've at least reported on it or given our Eagles a shoutout on SportsCenter!

Antoine Battut cited after straight red card for knee against Munster

I see two things here: a pathetic attempt of a knee to the head and acting as a result. Does it deserve a card? Yes. Does the card need to be red? No.

The strike does not appear to be deliberate. In my opinion, Battut probably wanted to throw the knee but stopped himself midway because he realized what could happen. But is he an idiot for even thinking of throwing a knee, especially in front of Barnes? ABSOLUTELY!
